Abstract

Intellectual property valuation refers to the valuation of property rights for creations of the mind such as patent, trademark and copyright. The selection of valuation approach for intellectual property is often difficult as there is a lack of availability of information for this sector. Besides that, valuers also face some tough challenges in their valuation work for intellectual property. These challenges come from both intellectual property and the valuation practice. Firstly, there is the issue of inconsistency in the recognition and measurement of intellectual property. Secondly, valuation practice is always subject to the appraisers’ subjectivity. Thus, the purpose of this research is to investigate the practice of IP valuation and challenges faced by IP valuers in intellectual property valuation. The research scope was carried out throughout Kuala Lumpur, targeting respondents who are involved in IP valuation practice. In this research, qualitative approach was used as the research approach and data collection gathered through semi structured interview and related documents review. Results of this research identified the elements in the practice of IP valuation and determined the challenges faced by IP valuers in intellectual property valuation practice. Findings from this research are beneficial to practitioners in IP valuation as well as policy makers in IP industry. Findings from this research may improve the landscape of the IP valuation practice in Malaysia
